Report Types • There are two types of reports created in Exony: • Historical-Time Reports (HT) - Reports that track call center and agent performance over a period of time - half hour, hour, date, month, year. These are statistics of what happened in the past. HT Reports can be used to evaluate call center, agent and skillgroup performance, identify peak periods, etc. • Real-Time Reports (RT) – Reports which contain “real-time” data that is automatically updated. Exony can refresh data from 15 to 60 seconds, depending on what the user selects. RT Reports can be used to view call center, agent and skillgroup states - including current hold times, how long agents are in Ready or Not Ready, etc. • Reports can be viewed online or exported. • * Dashboards provide a real-time view of the call center.
